Spokesperson of Adamawa Police Command, Mr Nemuel Yoila, confirmed the attack, but said that he was yet to have details of the casualty figure.
He said the affected areas had been secured, but could also not confirm whether any arrest had been made.
Reports from the affected villages, however, indicated that several people lost their lives and many houses destroyed, with residents fleeing the area.
The attack is coming barely two days after a committee set up by the state government to investigate the January sectarian violence in Lamurde and three other local government areas submitted its report.
The other three local government areas are Numan, Girei and Guyuk. (NAN)
